Wordly Success is not the Ultimate Goal

In Psalm 92:7 it is written, “Though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be destroyed forever.” This verse from the Book of Psalms deals with the transience of worldly success and prosperity, especially when associated with wickedness or evil deeds.

When considering the verse in the context of the idea that success is not the ultimate goal, we can draw a parallel. The psalm reminds us that the success of the wicked, even if it seems to flourish and prosper for a while, is only temporary and ultimately leads to destruction. Note that it says “forever” eradicated, pointing to the concept of the second death, eternal damnation, in the biblical context.

In the context of our contemplation, it serves as a reminder that the pursuit of success solely for personal gain, without regard for values, ethics, or the well-being of others, can lead to emptiness and a lack of fulfillment in the long run, even missing the opportunity for eternal life. True goals and fulfillment come from a deeper alignment with our values and a commitment to leading a virtuous and meaningful life.

The psalm encourages us to focus on enduring values of righteousness, justice, and integrity. It reminds us that a life built on such principles, rather than solely pursuing external markers of success, leads to a lasting and meaningful impact.

While success may be desirable, it is essential that we prioritize values, ethics, and the well-being of others in our pursuit of success. This aligns with the message of Psalm 92, emphasizing the importance of leading a purpose-driven life that goes beyond temporary worldly achievements.
